Wow! Thank you all for entering. There were over 75 entries when I added in the (+1)s for FB and blog followers. I appreciate everyone who stopped by. Drawing a name out of a fishbowl didn’t seem nerdy enough! So here is how the winner of the first ever giveaway was selected:
After compiling all of the names in the comments and adding in extra entries for the (+1)s, the names were put onto a spreadsheet. Each name was assigned a number in the order they were entered.
Then I headed over to Random.org where they have already”generated over 1,1078 random bits for the Internet community.” What a cool site! If you visit there, you will learn some interesting stuff about randomness including the fact that their particular variety of randomness is based on atmospheric noise.
I entered the number of entries into the True Random Number Generator, then clicked on the Generate button, blinked my eyes, and there was the number of the winning name!
Time to head back over to the spreadsheet and see who the lucky person was. It was Jessica@Book Sake. Congratulations Jessica! I have sent you an email, but you can also contact me here.
Nerdy Chicks Rule will be hosting another giveaway at the end of the month. I might try rafflecopter for that one.
I’ll be posting another Quoteable Nerdy Chick post later today, so stop back by.
Thanks again everyone!
